Chemistry in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team has been completely changed.
The new Chemistry system will also be used in SBCs which means that we need to get used to this because it is not something we will be able to avoid.
Each player in your team can have a maximum of 3 chemistry. This means the maximum chemistry in your squad is 33.
One blue diamond represents one Chemistry point.
The benefit of gaining chemistry on a player is to gain an advantage from the chemistry style applied to the card.
Instead of having cards linking next to each other to build chemistry now you build chemistry by having certain players from the same club, league or nation in your squad.
Each player that you add to your squad will add one increment to the Club Chemistry Threshold, League Chemistry Threshold and Country Chemistry Threshold.

You should now be able to understand from the image how Club, League and Country thresholds lead to Chemistry for players.
When a card is out of position they will be stuck on 0 chemistry.
Also, a card out of position eg Mbappe will no longer be contributing an increment to the Chemistry Thresholds for France, PSG, and Ligue 1
This may move everyone down by one Chemistry Point if you are on the edge of a threshold.
Each card has a Preferred Position and up to three Alternative Positions.
Mbappé’s Preferred Position is ST, however he can also play at LW and CF.
ICONs will always have full Chemistry when played in the Preferred Position.
Also, ICONs will count as two increments towards their Country Chemistry Threshold.
Heroes will always have full Chemistry when played in their Preferred Position.
Also, Heroes will count as two increments towards their League Chemistry Threshold, and will count as one increment towards their Country Chemistry Threshold.
Key points to wrap everything together:
Once we start playing we should get used to it pretty quickly if you aren't already.
